Miss LeMarr's Weekly Update

February 7 - 11

Notes from the Teacher 📝

*Valentine's Day Party - At this point, I am unsure what the party is going to look like as far as visitors. Mrs. Donnan will let us know when she knows. For the Valentine's Day Party, instead of picking up money, we are going to do "Party in a Bag". In the next few days, a gallon sized baggie with your child's name on it will come home. The bag can be filled up with snack items and a drink. The bag must be able to be zipped shut. On the day of the party, students will bring the bag back and will eat whatever they brought in their bag for the party. Please let me know if you have any questions.

*Spelling Test 18 - We are going to take spelling test 18 on Monday 2/7 when we return. So spelling list 19 will be coming home Monday to study for the test on Friday 2/11.

*Snacks - Please send a snack with your child to eat after rotation (about 9:30). Every so often we have students who bring snacks for the class in, but they eventually run out. If you would like to and are able to send snacks for the class, it would be greatly appreciated! Things like goldfish, cereal, animal crackers are great options.

*Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
